Summary

The role, relationships and responsibilities of the traditional ‘nursery nurse’ have changed markedly within the last 20 years, demanding a high level of skill, knowledge and understanding which pertains to formal international standards. This book responds to the needs of a workforce who have experienced rapid developments and challenges. It supports an understanding of ‘self’ and the creation of an organisational pedagogy.

Concepts are explored by reference to research indicating the importance of relationship-based practice with children and parents. Experienced practitioner Hazel Whitters draws on practical examples from the field, such as attachment, inclusion, pedagogy and child protection to bridge the implementation gap between current research, policy and practice of work in the early years.

Nursery Nurse to Early Years’ Practitioner will be of interest to early years' practitioners, academics, post-graduate students, researchers and course leaders in the field.
